The Story So Far…

When Land of Joy was purchased in 2014 Lama Zopa Rinpoche shared his big vision for there to be a large Kurukulla statue at the centre to help us thrive.

Over the past few years the incredible generosity of our supporters has meant we could take big steps towards fulfilling this wish including renovating the coach house behind the main building at Land of Joy which now has a small, special, double height gompa, to house the 14 foot statue.

As well as this, an amazing £32,000 has been raised for the statue itself which has been put towards the workshop fees, materials and living expenses for the artists over the last twelve months. 

So What’s Happening Now?

Internationally renowned sculptor Peter Griffin and his wife Denise have been building a stunning Kurukulla for us at Vajrayogini Institute in France.

The statue arrived on 12th September, and Peter already started to work on the statue here at Land of Joy. It will be filled with various substances and painted and then assembled and installed on a throne in the coach house.

Geshe la did arrive at the end of August and will help with the whole Project alongside Peter.

What happens next?

The funds already raised will continue to support the creation of the statue but we still need to raise a further £10,000 to cover:

some of the objects we need to fill the statue

  • Sandalwood £1500

  • precious stones £45

  • wealth vase £20 (we need 9 of them)

  • printing the mantras and purchase of other precious items for filling

  • hand painting of the statue once it is in place – an intricate process

  • Geshe Samten’s and Peter’s board for four months as he will help bless and fill the statue in its final stages.

How can you Help?

Please consider supporting this rare and special project by making a donation to help us fulfil Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s wishes for the centre. Thank you in advance for anything you can offer.
